Powerful performances by Jane Fonteyn and Orson Welles will bring a tear to your eyes. It is the quintessential love story written by a woman of great passion in a time period that didn’t encourage women toward unrestrained feelings. This will always be my favorite Jane Eyre film.

Glad to discover one of my favorite versions of Jane Eyre!
I didn't realize that Orson Welles and Joan Fonteyn had starred in a version of Jane Eyre, so I'm grateful for this post. Orson's portrayal of the brooding master of the manor was one of the best and most accurate on the screen (although his performance seemed to loose a bit of zest in a few of the later scenes). Also, Joan was suited for the role of the quiet yet deeply intelligent and sensitive Jane.
